Subject: Great sound, good show.
Listening because its today in GD history. The sound is nice and clear. But Jerry is too low in the mix, IMO. His voice is nice and in your face but his guitar needs to be there also.
Reading the reviews for the other copies, I appreciate that there is no hiss in this version.
Reviewer: kbmill - - September 11, 2015
Subject: bread crumb
I so enjoy High Time. One of the more rare songs that is played with consistency. Almost half of it's playings occured in 1969 and 1970. What happened in mid-July of 1970 that led to a 6 year hiatus and at whose suggestion was it brought back in 1976 with those haunting Donna backing vocals? Perhaps it was simply a tough harmony.

Once it made the comeback it is played, rarely but consistently to the end, so you were really lucky to hear it live.

Subject: He's gone
This He's gone was for Anwar Sadat, the president of Egypt who was assassinated (along with many other people by his own troops while watching a military parade) shortly before this show. His wife was instrumental in getting the Dead permission to play at the Pyramids in 1978. Perhaps the Blues For Allah theme in space is a tribute to his Arabic heritage as well, I like to think so. Really good show, one of the best of the tour.
Reviewer: Dylan M - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 2, 2012
Subject: Post drums is great
The Entire show is fire (as was much of oct 81' Europe tour) but the post drums is really worth a listen.

The way they break up Sugar Mags and the Stella Blue starts off mellow but really picks up steam in the final jam with a big triumphant climax, too bad they don't really transition it well into Good Lovin', but both songs still kill.

Nice to hear some quality 81' Dead. High energy and still killing it.
